Fair Use and DRM in Electronic Devices
Derek Slater of the Electronic Frontier Foundation examines state of the art DRM.
"Line Noise, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's all-too-irregular podcast, is back this week with a great interview with staff activist Derek Slater, who's been staffing the EFF booth at the Consumer Electronics Show. Derek takes us through the state of the electronics universe with regard to the march of devices that enable -- and restrict -- fair use. It's generally good news for the audio world, but the video world basically stinks -- a few analog hole devices are allowing you to do more with your devices, but mostly, there's nothin'. The lesson, I think, is to not buy any high-def video discs or players until you can be sure that you'll be able to do what you want with them." (Boing Boing)
